In the oil & gas sector, tpgroup is working with upstream producers to optimise the availability of critical resources, and therefore productivity.

tpgroup has built a digital twin that reflects the production resources (e.g. operators, rigs, wells, spares, consumables, etc.) and the factors (e.g. increased demand, lead-times of spare parts, available transportation, etc.) that effect their availability and productivity. 

Optimiser is being used to determine, for  a given set of rigs, what wells should be drilled, in which order, to deliver the optimal solution that balances:

  • maximising production
  • minimising costs
  • maximising rig utilisation
  • minimising time taken
